Sketchbook Sunday.

At the first hint of spring sunshine last week I took a quick trip to the beaches just down the road from us. Took a pie and my sketchbook, and did some quick doodles in the sun!

Etsy Faves 04.

It's been a busy few weeks lately, learning lots at my new job, working on some new scarves to add to my Etsy shop, and getting excited by the first hints of Spring here in New Zealand! And I've got another round-up of some of my latest Etsy finds to share!

I love the cute pattern on this clever scarf  from The Link Collective. It's such a great size as well.

 I would love one of these candles for clarity, calmness and purity from Shopean. They sound so amazing and relaxing!
 This bangle from Leah Ball is gorgeous, I love the marble looking beads. 

This concrete lamp from GANT Lights is incredible, I love the gold inside! 

And lastly this speckled wrapping paper from Normans Printery, perfect for wrapping any of the above!

Sketchbook Sunday.

I finally made it to Auckland museum a few weeks ago! I actually went twice, and took my sketchbook along both times. I spent some time doodling in the ocean section, and the pacific masterpieces room. 

 
I've also been doing some blind drawings!This was something we used to do a lot as a school assignment - draw without looking down at your page until you are finished! I still love it, you can end up with some pretty weird results, and it makes me way less judgmental about what I end up with on the page!




Have you done any drawing lately? Have you ever tried blind drawing? I totally recommend giving it a go!
